If you want a small tank, go with a 48/45 or a 45/45 both are extremely small. I've always used crossfire without a problem.

Yes you can still use the tank but it'll only fill to 3000, not 4500.

CP, Crossfire, Air America, and Guerilla Air are all good brand names. I'd actually sugest the 68/45 to you as they're not that heavy, and will be good if you find a shop that fills to 4500. A 45/45 IS the smallest tank out there for 4500 fills, but it doesn't have enough air capacity for most players. With the 68/45, you'd get a few hundred shots less than you are now, but with a couple pounds less weight. Another alternative is a 68/3k, which are cheaper than 68/45's, but will not suit you as well in the long run.

Only carbon fiber tanks I'd stay away from are the 114's and 88's :P

Those are big. Everything else is not heavy enough to not want to use. Especially compared to a 72/30 steelie.

i thought they all shot the same amount of shots depending on the 3000 or 4500? ur telling me that the 45/48/68/72 also make a diff i thought that was just how big it is? let me know if im wrong about this. if so i will probably want a 68

The first number is the physical size of the tank. The second number is the PSI of the tank.

If you are comparing two tanks of equal size (68/3000 and 68/4500) then the tank with the higher PSI will yield more shots.

So for example a 68/3000 and a 48/4500 would yield about the same number of shots.

So if you want a small tank then you can go for a 45/45, a 48/45 or even a 72/45 peanut tank, that will be a little shorter than a 68ci tank but have more shots/fill.

And if you want really small you can get a 13ci tank
